Adjust an employee's leave balance

Edit an employee's annual leave balance in their payslip during a pay run, so they receive the correct entitlements.

When do I adjust an employee's leave balance?

Create a leave type and assign leave

Depending on the leave you're transferring, you might have to create a new leave type and assign it to the employee before you can transfer it in the employee's payslip.

You don't need to create a leave type for cashing up annual leave as it's already set up in Xero.

Edit an employee's leave balances

  1. Once you've created any required leave type and assigned it to the employee, create an unscheduled pay run.
  2. From the draft pay run, click the name of the employee to open their details.
  3. Under Leave Accruals in the relevant leave line(s), enter the leave adjustment amount.
  4. Click Save & Close.
  5. Process the pay run.
